    My local Barnes & Noble had the musical soundtrack for 50% off as part of their vinyl sale when I went a couple of days ago.

    Well that was weird.
    don't believe in white supremacy? look at today as several examples of it in action. this is absurd. but sadly, not very surprising.

    Yeah I am a childcare teacher and just feel happy that we’re actually included in with the k-12 teachers because honestly I didn’t think that was going to happen. They just bumped all teachers up to 1B phase in TN and locally they started rolling out 1A vaccines earlier this week. So...really hoping it happens soon

    @Twentytwo also hoping you can get it soon too. I think with “pre-existing conditions” they are making it so you have to have 2 or more to be included in this first phase? Either way, hang in there. It’ll happen soon. I hope
    There are so many things I ordered in either the first week of the month or the last one in November and still haven’t received. Meanwhile, I got a shipping email for a Sault LP from the UK this week and it wound up delivered yesterday. 🤷🏻‍♂️
    masked, "distanced" holiday "party" at work today felt kinda the same as all the other years. Go in conference room, grab your secret santa gift, some food, and retreat back to your room, trying to quickly shove food in your face before the toddlers overthrow everything.
    So this reissue of Aimee Mann's Bachelor No. 2...it'll be available after RSD at some point, right?
    So I found out today that I may just never be able to drink wine. It makes me feel sick immediately. And pairing that with a thanksgiving meal? Awful idea. The day was great until the meal + wine, so ya know the best part of the holiday... but thankful for my gf for being there/understanding when I’m being a weird, panicky mess

    Is there an allergic aspect? Or have you not had it before?

    Rosé is a tricky one. In Argentina a good bottle of wine costs the same as two bottles of Coca-Cola, so it's affordable. I've tried a lot of rosé and found only one brand that is tasty and doesn't make me throw up. I guess it's the kind of grape they use (or that's what I wanna believe)

    I’ve been trying to figure it out fully, but yes I think there’s a slight allergy happening. Apparently being allergic to tannins is a thing, and there are more tannins in red wine. I’ve been doing some reading about it, and I think it’s an allergy thing. It all lines up when I read about it. Sad thing is, the rosé I had last night tasted great (also rosé is not known for having a lot of tannins? so who knows).
    RIP to the really good dog of my girlfriend's sister's. We took care of her a lot, even just recently a few weeks ago. She declined very fast and passed away today. She wasn't my dog, but sometimes it really felt like it. Sorry for the bummer status. Hope everything works out tonight.
    If you like The Mountain Goats, you should definitely check out their (pre-recorded) livestream on noonchorus tonight. Last week’s was insanely great.
    Starting the day with a more balm-soothing sound: Sylvan Esso’s new album. Sorry Sufjan. Can’t do depressing right now

    It's a high energy album for sure but the songs all sound the same to me 🤷‍♂️

    The new Sylvan Esso sounds similar to the old Sylvan Esso but they’re one of those bands where if they drifted out of their lane it wouldn’t make any sense. I like this new album just fine.

    People seemed really uninterested in their last LP but I never understood why. It’s better than their debut, and was one of my favorite albums of that year. I still listen to it regularly. This new one will grow on me I bet too.
    Shore is as gorgeously layered as Crack-Up, but as accessible as Helplessness Blues. More upbeat stuff on here which I am here for. But I do wish it was a bit more complex like CU (now that that one has clicked I adore it).

    i actually feel like it's every bit as complex as Crack-Up. Maybe it's just not as obvious after one listen because these songs are so damn catchy. I love Crack-Up too, but it tended to meander a bit - Shore does its meandering but stays within a more focused realm while doing it. For a 50+ minute album it's awfully concise.

    This is based on immediate impressions. But I get ya, I could see it being as complex as CU but yeah the catchiness is what grabs me. There are amazing instrumentals in these tracks though, some that you don’t even notice the first time you listen.

    I think I agree @Bennnnn. CU felt more majestically raw out the gate, with even a hint of folk-psychedelia. This new one aligns a bit more with the accessibility of their first two, but with some of the CU layers baked in. That's a first impression of course.
